Baba Rahman moved to Augsburg last summer, after impressing at Greuther Fürth, and helped the Bundesliga minnows to a club record fifth place finish which secured a maiden Europa League campaign for 2015/16.

Jose Mourinho saw his side start their Premier League title defence with a home draw with Swansea City and looks ready to strengthen his defensive options, whilst also keeping a close eye on Everton’s John Stones.
